Portable Planer Height
I am planning to start a new planer stand tomorrow -the planer is a Makita 2012NB - 12" wide. It is going to be a cabinet of drawers. I don't like the present height as the feed table is 21" off the floor. I think in the range of 30" would be easier on the back. Is there a reason to keep the planer low? I know some people mount them on work mates which seems to be a good height.
I appreciate the help.
Also, I am building a similar stand for my Ridgid Oscillating Belt/Spindle sander. It is going to be about 33" with the locking casters. I will post pictures in progress tomorrow. I have the carcase put together and material squared for the face frame.
